How To Increase Your Blog Traffic

pexels-photo-414645.jpegAfter the success of my post So You Want To Start A Blog? I have decided to start throwing in more of these blogging related posts. While I know I have a lot of mums that read my blog who might not be interested in the ins and outs of blogging, I am also aware that some of my readers are bloggers themselves who could find some of my tips useful. These are just some tips that I have learnt over the last year and a half on how to increase my blog traffic.

Post shareable content
All the tips that I am going to list will only work if you have good, shareable content. No amount of promotion will help if you aren’t writing posts that people want to read or share. I tend to write a mixture of posts, some that I just really want to write (that I don’t really care if they are popular anyway because I just want to write them) and posts that I know will do well in terms of views. Lists, reviews and tips, tricks and hacks will generally do better than little Tim’s 14 month update, that is what I’ve found anyway. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t write those posts but just be aware that they probably won’t be the ones to make it big. Continue reading “How To Increase Your Blog Traffic”

Liebster Awards 2017

I was kindly nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Emma at Ettie and Me, if you haven’t ever read her blog before, go and have a nosy, I’m sure you’ll like what you find there! She actually nominated me a while a go but in true Hanna style I’m only now getting to it two months later. That’s the great thing I’ve found about Blogtober is that I am revisiting posts that have been sitting in my drafts for too long and finally getting around to hitting that little ‘Publish’ button.

For anyone who doesn’t know what the Liebster Award is (I didn’t either!), it is basically an award set up by The Global Aussie to give exposure to new(ish) bloggers. It’s a good way of sharing the love with other bloggers who you think deserve some credit for their slice of the internet. I was set eleven questions by Emma, which I have answered and then at the end of the post I will set new questions for my eleven nominees.  Continue reading “Liebster Awards 2017”

So You Want To Start A Blog?

img_5720I wrote my very first blog post in July 2016 after thinking about starting a blog for a good few years. It began solely as a personal project that nobody knew about and it’s only in the last few months that I have started to put more time and effort into it to really make it into something to be proud of and to bring in some income. I’m by no means a big blogger but I thought I would share some of the things that I have learnt along the way to help anyone reading this who might be thinking about starting a blog.

1. Think about why you want to start a blog Continue reading “So You Want To Start A Blog?”
